SHIPPING CONTAINERS FOR SALE
Unbeatable prices on delivery ratesAs we operate with supplier depots across all parts of the UK, we are able to offer the cheapest rates for container delivery possible. We endeavour to source the best containers closest to the cutomer's delivery address, to avoid costly long distance haulage charges.
Containers for shippingMost of the shipping containers for sale available on this website are suitable for export, comply with ISO requirements and are certified and plated. However, if you do intend to ship overseas it is always recommended that you contact the office to confirm suitability. Standard sizes for containers for export are 20ft and 40ft - take a look at this typical example of a 20ft model. For shipping larger loads this moderately priced 40ft container comes with a CSC plate, ready to be shipped.
All shipping containers are made from high tensile corten steel, and are built to withstand the rigours of overseas journeys, as well as being rust proof, watertight and highly secure.
Containers for storageMost shipping containers for sale in the UK are destined for use as site storage. Because the UK imports manufactured goods more than it imports there is a regular surplus of shipping containers for sale at great prices - certainly when compared to the cost of building similarly secure storage units. It is for that reason that they have become common sites from the school playground to the industrial estates.
Containers used for storage are not bound by rigid ISO shipping standards, therefore they can be adapted in all sorts of ways to fit a variey of purposes. Some common modifications for storage containers include:
- Cut downs - this allows more choice of sizes
- Alternative doors types- designed for easier use for storage
- Side doors - giving more space for loading/unloading
- Anti condensation options -ie lining and insulating, grafotherm treatment
- Repainting - for a smart apearance and a less industrial look
